Goat Range (Kootenays)
Parent Area: Slocan Ranges
 

Area: 1700 sq km.<br>Southeast of the Lardeau Range, the Goat Range includes the highest peaks in the Slocan Ranges. It is separated from the Lardeau Range by Poplar Creek and Kuskanax Creek, and border the Nakusp Range to the West. There are discrepancies in the literature as to whether Poplar Creek is in fact the boundary between the Lardeau Range and the Goat Range. Putnam (1977) includes the Spyglass Group in the Goat Range. Old Canadian Alpine Journal articles contradict each other. Whipple and Kratky in Southern Selkirks and Northern Purcells (2010) put Poplar Creek as the boundary, which seems to align with the 1:50,000 maps.
